Hiring for IT Jobs Jumps in North Carolina

Posted by Bruce Ackerman on Thu, Sep 16, 2010

According to a recent article in the Raleigh News and Observer, Openings for Information Technology (IT) jobs in North Carolina took a giant leap forward from July to August--up 14.9%. Citing a report from the NC Technology Assn. (NCTA), the number of IT job openings in the state during this period represents a 400% increase over the same period last year. This is great news for students and others seeking opportunity in the growing IT industry.

The North Carolina numbers substantially outpace national IT technology openings which increased just 3.3% in July-to-August timeframe. Recent data published by NCTA also indicates that IT employment in the Raleigh-Cary metro is up 6% over last year, and up 8% in Durham. Career Services in Raleigh has confirmed a substantial improvement in hiring compared with 2009.
